            The best night of the year so far, such an experience in the beautiful setting of Somerset House. Amazing hospitality, service and very friendly. The decor is very special too. Menu us great, I couldn't decide as I wanted to try it all. We were a group of friends having a catch up and the last to leave. Go and experience the magic! Thank you Dipna Anand and team, for a very memorable evening.

            Food is average and no better than other average indian restaurants. Would have been better with a bit kick in the spice. They did not have most of the beers listed in the menu which is disappointing.

            What an amazing experience. First time eating here and at Somerset House. I am Punjabi so extremely fussy when eating Indian food when it’s not my Mother’s! I was not disappointed. The food was delicious and substantial. Slight issue with the salt levels and next time I will ask for low salt as I don’t use a lot of salt in my cooking. The Dynamic Chicken wings were spicy and crunchy. The Tikka Chicken was perfectly spiced. The Nan bread was really well made. I had the Thali too which was delicious, as was the Rasmalai. The restaurant over looks the river with lovely views. Will be going back

            The service was impeccable at this lovely restaurant. Everything we ordered (and we ordered a lot) was flavoursome and plentiful. We eat pescatarian and there was plenty of choice even on this short menu. The waiter gave us great advice and made the evening really enjoyable. This is going to be a new regular for us.

            The food here is fantastic with lovely authentic Punjabi flavours! Definitely the best Indian restaurant we’ve been to in London. The decor and ambience are amazing. We ordered the Dipna meat thali, chicken biriyani, papa Ji’s masala fish, chicken tikka, and masala fries for two people to share. Everything tasted amazing and would suit all palettes. Nothing was overly spicy so great place to take kids too!

            We visited Dipna Anand Restaurant in Somerset House for a pre opera dinner and were not disappointed! This is an excellent restaurant, food was delicious - we didn't leave a scrap, service very good at both the bar and the table. They got us in and out in enough time without feeling at all rushed. Lovely atmosphere. We will be returning!

            Birthday meal after visiting the Beano exhibition -lovely way to finish the afternoon. Delicious cocktail. We had starters and thali each. All delicious and priced very well with exceptional and friendly service. Only criticism is that the chili paneer sauce and the dynamite chicken wing sauce were too similar tasting and if we’d know we would have ordered differently. Not a criticism, more an observation!

            Our meal here was just what we wanted. Tasty food, good service and value for money too. We tried the meat and vegetable thali and both were delicious. Our waitress was able to explain what the puddings were and we tried two of them - and enjoyed both. We were impressed by the high standard of food and service in a restaurant only just open. We will definitely eat there again.

            Although venue and restaurant set up was lovely, the food unfortunately let us down. We were excepting the food to be more flavoursome. We had to add a little more salt to some of the food and the naan bread was very thick and doughy. I think the food isn’t really for the Indian palette and likely more catered for non Indians. Overall really disappointed as we really enjoyed the food at the brilliant restaurant in southall.
